To React or Not?

Today I practiced reacting slowly and intentionally without emotion attached to the reaction in response to events.

I practiced explaining my thoughts and considered the other person’s point of view as equal to mine. I considered  and acknowledged their intentions before reacting with mine. I created space for connections and didn’t overthink and flowed with what came our way. By not reacting and adding fuel to possible conflict, there wasn’t any conflict. I was part of the solution. a-ha.

This was a good, a-ha moment! I want to continue to practice this one. It’s harder than it sounds, especially when I want to be right. Don’t we all?
